About the Handgun:
The Ruger LCP (Lightweight Compact Pistol) is designed for concealed carry. It is a spurless-hammer double-action only design. Its glass-filled nylon frame is topped by a hardened steel slide with a blued finish. It incorporates state-of-the-art polymers, aircraft quality aluminum alloys, and high-grade precision steel components, combined for high strength and low weight. It the smallest pistol frame ever created by Ruger.
About the Manufacturer:
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is the leading independent producer of firearms in the United States. Sturm, Ruger designs, manufactures, and markets a full line of pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns, primarily for sporting purposes, but also for law enforcement and military agencies. Formed in 1949 by Alexander Sturm and Bill Ruger the company has had long and continued success, taking its place among the classic names of U.S. gunmakers.
About the Cartridge:
Designed by John Browning and introduced by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium, this cartridge has achieved world-wide acceptance and has even been adopted as the standard pistol cartridge by several governments. One reason for the round's success is that it is the largest practical cartridge that can be easily adapted to small automatic pocket pistols. Ballistics fall far short of even the 9mm Luger, but still prove adequate for most self-defense situations. The round has established quite a niche position in this role, often being chosen over more traditional small calibers such as the .25 and .32 Autos.
